Josh Beckett Trade Rumors: Rangers-Red Sox Deal Is Dead, According To Report

Josh Beckett to the Texas Rangers doesn't appear to be happening, as reports surfaced on Monday. Rob Bradford of WEEI.com cites a major league source that says the proposed deal that would send the Red Sox right-hander Josh Beckett to the Rangers is dead.

The Rangers seemed like baseball's most talented team at the beginning of the season but approaching the trade deadline, they're looking for a true No. 1 starting pitcher. Rumors have circulated that they were interested in bringing back Cliff Lee as well, but that doesn't appear to be happening either.
